We had the pleasure of having the Myerscough College Students at A.P. Broome Landscapes again.  They are currently studying their NVQ Level 3 Landscape and Sports turf.  The group have been studying A.P. Broome Landscapes Ltd as part of their qualification and every year we look forward to seeing the next generation of Landscapers.  It was refreshing to see the genuine interest shown by the students and we are sure they will do well at Myerscough College and beyond.

We have new staff and new kit ready to start the works now on our recently awarded Bristol Water Contract.  In the photograph we have Mark Cope, Jason Gardner and Jamie Rose with their contract manager Alex Oakley, exciting times ahead for this contract.

A.P. Broome Landscapes would like to acknowledge the efforts of two of our Operatives in their actions on Thursday last week. Lee Francis and Michael White witnessed a serious road traffic accident whilst travelling between client sites in the Derbyshire area.  They were quick to provide first aid and comfort to the injured drivers before emergency services could attend the scene. This highlights the importance of the efforts we make to provide the best possible training to our staff.  It’s events like these where we see a direct impact outside of the working world.
